School of Nursing & Health Studies 

Dr. Miryha Gould Runnerstrom 

assistant professor 

Runnerstrom focuses on public health broadly, including environmental psychology, environmental health, health promotion and pedagogy. Building on her dissertation work, she has continued to study the positive health benefits of nature exposure, especially among college students.

Additionally, she has a particular interest in the scholarship of teaching and learning in public health. 

In her leadership roles, Runnerstrom has prioritized improving inclusive excellence through organizing workshops and training for faculty and staff, and student support initiatives, This work also has included the dissemination of best practices for holistic review of student applications and faculty dossiers, with an emphasis on academic and non-academic factors that are indicators of success.
